DPAI Architecture together with Philip Toms of Toms + McNally Design, were given the task to renovate a designated heritage house in Hamilton, Ontario.

The original house is an example of 1930s Streamline Moderne architecture, which was given a full restoration, with a second storey added.

 

This is what the house looked like before the renovations.
